The scary radio show that Tom is listening to at the beginning of this short - "The Witching Hour" - was an actual 1940's radio show. The voice that Tom hears on the radio was provided by Martha Wentworth, who hosted "The Witching Hour" as Old Nancy, the Witch of Salem. See more »
Jerry spies Tom listening to a creepy story on the radio and seizes the opportunity to scare his nemesis.
I didn't find this particular episode that funny: the humour seemed rather constrained and the whole set up was kinda lame (Jerry is essentially the 'bad guy' in this one, tormenting poor Tom for no particular reason).
There is the occasional flash of inspiration (such as Tom's literal 'heart in mouth' experience, and the moment when his nines lives are sucked out of his body), but, on the whole, this effort lacks the frenetic pacing, excellent animation and sheer wit of most of T&J's other cartoons.
